Hammock Gear Top Quilts
Hammock Gear makes some of the highest quality lightweight down top quilts for hammockers and ground dwellers available anywhere. We take pride in our materials, craftsmanship and customer service.
All quilts are made to order. Please inquire with firstname.lastname@example.org for current lead times.
All of our quilts ship with a 24" x 36" Storage Sack and Stuff Sack for backpacking.
About the Burrow 20˚
The Burrow works for both hammockers and ground-dwellers alike. It is a lightweight sleeping quilt that takes the insulation of a traditional sleeping bag and puts it all on the top and sides, leaving the back (which insulation is compressed and unusable anyway) open. Many hammockers use top quilts in lieu of a traditional sleeping bag because they are easier to slide into when it's time to sleep.The Burrow is designed with a half taper, foot box and a cinched top. Comes complete with a stuff sack.
The 20° Burrow is the perfect solution for staying warm in a hammock. With a conservative rating of 20°F, and filled with premium quality, water resistant, 850 fill-power Hungarian goose down, it will keep you warm during colder seasons.
Top Quilt Advantages
Having found the Hammock Gear website, chances are you are aware of some of the advantages of top quilts. Their growing popularity, with both the hammock crowd and ground dwellers alike, is due to their function and versatility, especially as compared to traditional mummy-style sleeping bags. Some of these advantages include:
|Fill Weight||11.3 oz||12.0 oz||12.7 oz||12.4 oz||13.2 oz||14.0 oz|
|Total Weight||17.84 oz||18.66 oz||19.31 oz||19.51 oz||20.34 oz||22.03 oz|
*Indicated lengths are for Snap closure Burrows when they are snapped and cinched closed. Burrows that are unsnapped and open are approximately 4" longer than above. Burrows with sewn footboxes are approximately the same length as shown. The standard model is designed to fit persons up to 6' tall.
We utilize the finest 850 fill power, water-resistant goose down on the market in all of our quilts. It is tested and certified by the International Down and Feather Testing Laboratory.
All Hammock Gear quilts are made of ARGON fabric. All ARGON fabric is specifically designed ripstop nylon which is manufactured for Hammock Gear. We offer both 10 and 15 denier weights with certain colors only available in one or the other. ARGON 67 (10d) weighs 0.67oz/square yard while ARGON 90 (15d) weighs 0.90 oz/square yard. It has a Durable Water Resistant (DWR) finish. The DWR not only improves the water resistance of ARGON , it also enhances the fabric by improving overall strength, tightening the weave and thus increasing its down-proofness. Calendaring of the fabric further enhances the down-proofness of the quilt.
All of our quilts (except the Burrow 50) make use of baffle (also known as "box baffle") construction. This means that the seams between the down-filled chambers are not sewn through, but instead consist of a fabric wall about .75 to 3 inches tall, depending on the model. The Burrow 50, the lightest of our Top Quilts, uses sewn-through construction.
At Hammock Gear, we use temperature ratings which are very conservative. Compare them in the marketplace and you will agree. Here is a point we wish to emphasize: the first and most important step you must take when choosing a quilt by temperature is to Know Thyself. Are you a Cold sleeper, a Warm sleeper, or maybe a Really Warm sleeper? Factor this into your selection process and you will be much better off.
Two options are available: Sewn footbox or Snap Footbox. The sewn option is a permanent footbox approximately 20 inches long, measured from the bottom. A sewn footbox is fully enclosed/fully insulated, and thus allows no cold spots. It is recommended for 0° - 20° temps. The Snap version allows the quilt to be fully opened and to lie flat. 5 snaps are used. It is recommended for temps above 20°. When closed the snap version, which has a drawcord closure, has an opening of approximately one inch. Some users, depending on conditions/temps, will use a clothing item or small piece of foam pad to plug this hole. Many HG customers enjoy using their quilts in the home, and love the versatility of using the quilt “blanket style” or as a “throw”, and the snap version fits the bill.
Select your choice of exterior color from our current stock. The color of the interior fabric is your choice of black or charcoal gray.
Our top quilts are built with a standard Half-Taper design. Custom work is available if you have different requirements.
Quilts come standard with attachment cord loops (these can be omitted by request).

Very well made. I love the colors too!!! I can't wait to use it!!
by Unknown – 30th Nov 2016
I have a sleeping bag that weighs 3 times this amount that isn't this warm! I'm 6 foot, broad shouldered guy and the regular size fit perfectly around my shoulders and feet. In combo with an underquilt there is nothing better. Highly recommend.
by Phil – 24th Nov 2016
Ordered the burrow 20 during a sale. Received it within 2 weeks from the order. Took it out about a week after receiving it. First night it only got down to 50, then the weather took a turn for the worse the next morning woke up to snow on the ground upper 20's, I was so warm I didn't want to get out of the hammock. I also have a HG 20 top quilt that complements this underquilt, which is also a great product.
by john – 22nd Nov 2016
I used this with an incubator 20 and it kept me warm through a night in the mid twenties at 3500ft during a severe wind alert. There were wind gusts up to 60mph happening pretty frequently and I was doing alright in my down fortress.
The build quality is superb!
by P. Kelly – 15th Nov 2016
I used my new 20 F Burrow along with the 20 F Incubator this past weekend and was very impressed. I am a cold sleeper and was warm all night long. I wore a hat and long underwear with socks .On Friday night the lows got to 24 F and on Saturday night the low got to 25 F with the "feels like" temperatures on both night getting into the middle teens. With traditional sleeping bags I typically have to purchase an EN rating of at least 10 F below what I think the lowest temperature is going to be, but the Hammock Gear insulation was dead on. I highly recommend them.
by David – 10th Nov 2016
I'm a ground dweller and sleep warm.
This is my first quilt and I was a little doubtful that it would keep we as warm as full zip, similarly rated, bag. I'm a "busy" sleeper and was also concerned I would toss out of my coverage.
After a month trekking in autumn at high elevation, I never had an issue with either.
My only suggestion (and I'm sure minimalist will disagree) - I wish it had a small pocket at the top. I've come accustomed to having a small stow for a headlamp, keys, whatever you might need in the night without fumbling around.
by Hunt – 9th Nov 2016
So glad I was recommended this piece of gear by a friend. I'm 6 ft 2 in and got the wide and long version of the quilt. I probably could've fit a smaller size but wanted to be safe and go big or go home. I love this quilt and will continue to spread the word.
by Faison – 6th Nov 2016
Great quality and super lightweight. Thanks HG
by Bill – 2nd Nov 2016
Just ordered the Burrow 20 and it arrived in less than a week. I haven't had time to get it out in the woods since it just arrived, but we are planning to trips in the next few weeks. I did set my hammock up in the back yard and used my new incubator 20 under quilt and the burrow 20 top quilt for about an hour. Construction is top notch. I know I'm gonna love it.
by Andrew Benson – 28th Oct 2016
This is my second one. I've got a 40 with snaps and a 20 sewn footbox. I live in my 40, it's just amazing.
If you're in the verge, just do it. It's one of those things that you will have the rest of your life.
The craftsmanship and customer service is second to none.
by mark – 20th Oct 2016
got my 20 degree burrow, and it is an awesome quilt , id swear its custom made just for me.
by David Cader – 18th Oct 2016
I recently took this quilt on a six night backpacking trip in northern Ontario. Based on reviews I expected this quilt to deliver and I have to say that it met all of my high expectations. This is a great piece of gear.
I was expecting the weather to be around 5 degrees Celsius at night, but we had a warm spell and this quilt was almost too warm ... not often you wish for cold weather!
I am so happy that I no longer have to struggle into a mummy bag when using my hammock.
by Gottabyke – 10th Oct 2016
Quality and craftsmanship is second to none. Very conservatively rated. First night out was 28 degrees F and I was toasty warm. I would say that I could easily take this down to 0 degrees F or lower. Turnaround was about 2 weeks and customer service was excellent.
by Jay – 9th Oct 2016
Spent 4 days and 3 nights on the Teton Crest Trail in September. First night was in the 20s and this was my first experience using a quilt instead of my sleeping bag. Went to sleep with my down jacket on and woke up sweating. By the third night I was completely comfortable with my sleep system. Stayed nice and warm through the night and didn't even realize it was snowing all night. Woke up in upper Cascade Canyon under 5 inches of snow.
Would highly recommend this quilt to anyone looking to get the best value for your dollar. To top it all off, the service from the company is the best, quick answers to all my questions and very happy with the quality of the product.
Burrow 20 w/ 2oz overfill and Ground Pad attachment kit (highly recommend also)
NeoAir xTherm Sleeping Pad
by Michael Wells – 6th Oct 2016
First experience with a quilt (vs. a sleeping bag). First night in tent the temp unexpectedly dipped below freezing with a snowstorm (after a daytime high of over 100!). I was very comfortable while tent mates were struggling. I was slightly concerned about the quilt concept in advance but it works really well for me, giving much more freedom than a sleeping bag, an astonishing amount of warmth given the light weight and it doesn't slip off. I'm 6' 5" tall and was pleased to find the quilt long enough. The Hammock Gear Pillow seems less useful (too small, not enough cushioning) and I haven't yet figured out the Ground Pad Attachment Kit which I probably won't need.
by Tom Pittman – 5th Oct 2016
This Quilt has performed exactly as expected, the build quality is good as well. I think that it would be hard to find a better light sleeping option for the price, unless you have skill in making your own gear.
by Jake Snider – 1st Oct 2016
I've spent probably 15 or so nights in this bag so far. Most of those nights were August in Alaska, and the last few in the upper peninsula of Michigan in late September. In the night-time temperature ranges of 40's-60's this bag has been warm enough. The versatility of being able to buckle it into a half bag or open it up all the way has made for comfortable sleeping in this range of temperatures. The build quality seems great. It seems tough enough that it will be durable if taken care of. All stitching seems solid and I haven't seen any leaking down. I ordered the extra long , extra wide with no taper and its basically like a huge comfortable comforter that still packs down small and very light. It's exactly what I wanted for my sleep system. I emailed customer service and asked if they could rush me an order in time for an Alaska trip. They got it to me in about 4 weeks in plenty of time for my trip. They were the only company willing to work with me on this and I appreciate that greatly. They seem like a quality company, I would highly recommend them.

I bought a Burrow 20 and an Incubator 20 for winter camping in the south and high altitude camping in the Rockies. I recently took a week-long training course that had us hiking the continental divide in Colorado. Temps in the high 20's most nights. Even on the night that it went to 19 I slept in socks pants and a thin shirt. I had to pull my arms out a few times because I was getting too warm. I think I slept warmer and more comfortably than anyone else, groundhog or hanger, in the whole group. We had a "circle stretch" one morning where you had to lead a stretch and tell your favorite piece of gear. I said " I have three because they make one system; my Warbonnet Blackbird, my Hammock Gear Burrow, and my Hammock gear Incubator"
by Dave – 23rd Sep 2016
Great TQ. Ordered it the day they moved office locations. And then even changed my order slightly after placing it. HG guys were awesome, changed up my order mid stream, shipped it extremely fast, around 10 days, and had it arrive super fast. Great quilt. Will definitely order another one for other family members.
by Unknown – 6th Sep 2016
Definitely a quality product. I ended up getting the extra long and wide version based on Hammock Gear's recommendations in the frequently asked questions section. I am definitely a quilt convert. I haven't had in cold temps yet but in 40 degrees I slept in it with just my breifs quite comfortably. I would definitely recommend the chord system they offer to help keep the quilt snug around you. I am an active sleeper and they made the difference for me. Plus I can see how in cold weather they would be invaluable.
by Ryan Vorisek – 4th Sep 2016
Finally pulled the trigger on a high quality sleep system, and love it. Paired this with a 0deg Incubator, and was toasty all night. I'm a fairly cold sleeper, so it was nice not waking up every couple hours to readjust because I was cold. Glad to support our cottage vendors!
by JD – 4th Sep 2016
Super warm for its weight, packs down small. The Hammock Gear team did an impressive job building my order and getting to me in time for my trip to King's Canyon National Park. Fantastic company who I will be recommending to all my backpacking friends.
by Unknown – 2nd Sep 2016
It's great to buy a high quality product that is made local. Very light and warm. Doesn't get any better
by Unknown – 25th Aug 2016
It hasn't been cold enough to try out my new winter quilt yet but throwing it on on the bed in the air conditioning feels amazing! The workmanship is truly great and inspires me with the confidence that this will be an important part of my fall and winter kit, in combination with my matching 0 incubator that will be here tomorrow! That being said, I am most impressed by the customer service at Hammock Gear. As a first year hammock camper it took me some time to figure out exactly what I needed. I emailed and changed my order twice and both changes were met with a "no problem, we want you to have the right quilt for your needs" . Now that is customer service! And now I have the right quilt for my needs!
by MRk Painter – 25th Aug 2016
I liked my Burrow (2 oz extra down) so much I got this one for my wife. My brother and a friend also bought this quilt on my recommendation. The only problem is the modified quilts take a while to deliver. Mine has survived 1700 miles on the PCT and several mountaineering trips and is still in great shape. I nap under it at home.
by Downhill n Quincy – 24th Aug 2016
First time to use a quilt. Always used a sleeping bag as a quilt in my Hennessy. With the 20 barrow there is more room and so much easier to maneuver around.
Costumer service is also 5 stars. I emailed questions/ concerns and I got quick replies with knowledgeable answers. Thank you Hammock Gear.
by Stone Oliver – 18th Aug 2016
The quilt is sturdy, warm, fluffs well, compacts into the stuff bag well, and works nicely as a plain blanket if you get the snaps instead of the sewn footbox. I'm also amazed at how well waterproofed the stuff sack is. On an overnighter hike of the Twin Valley Trail, it poured constantly. I didn't have a pack liner and my bag got very wet on the inside but the quilt was dry as a bone. I highly recommend this product. It's also cheaper than comparable competition.
by BP – 15th Aug 2016
I purchased a Burrow 20 about 2 years ago, so impressed with the quality and usability, especially with the snap footbox. I am a ground sleeper more than hammock, so it was a bit of a gamble to buy, but it was the right decision. I slept under the stars twice last weekend on my insulated Klymit pad at I was the perfect temp. It was in the high 30's both nights. The only reason I gave it 4 and not 5 stars, is that the down is migrating toward the edges and there seems to be no real solution.
Response from Hammock Gear:
Hey BP! We're glad you like the gear. If you'd like us to check out the migration issue for you, please email me at email@example.com
by Gonzo – 4th Aug 2016
Took these down to 30 degrees and I was toasty all night. I'm confident 20 or colder will be tolerable, maybe even comfortable. Gf got her under quilt with 2oz over stuff and said she had never been so warm while camping.
Our packs were so light that it felt weird, I had to throw in some coldies just to weigh my pack dow a little.
Worth the investment and much appreciated. Definitely recommend.
by D Martin – 3rd Aug 2016
Tried my burrow 20 for the first time this week. It was warm and the down had tons of loft. Quality is top notch as always!
by Carter in WNC – 28th Jul 2016
I'm quite tall (6'6) and the long/regular width quilt is plenty roomy for me, especially in the hammock. I've been singing its praises since I first used it - super compact, warm, affordable, adaptable to a ton of uses with the snaps. Bonus points for a quick response from customer service and the product arriving ahead of schedule. Can't recommend the Burrow enough.
by Lawrence – 27th Jul 2016
Have not used topquilt yet but I am impressed with the quality of sewing and material used.
by Mark. – 25th Jul 2016
This my first quilt and first down product since my cold weather mountain bag when I was in the Army. It always had feathers poking through and I looked like I had been fornicating with chickens when I got out of it (feathers all over me). The burrough 20 is fantastic and the customer service is great. The folks at Hammock Gear were very patient with me and understanding, even after I changed my order 3 times. No doubt one of the best companies in the business.
Rock on and pack light.

This review comes after 2 years of field testing. First, the guys and girls at HG are incredible. Before ordering I called and spoke with someone about the product specs. He asked what kind of environment/climates I might be using it for and really cared about where and how I might be hanging. Second, the product I received was extremely well made. After using this top quilt in the field for 2 years (Maine, Indiana, all over New Mexico) in a variety of environments and climate conditions, I am very pleased! Can't go wrong with these hand-made top quilts!
by Carlos – 5th Jul 2016
I had purchased the Incubator 20 for a new hammock setup replacing my tent/bag/pad combo I have been using for years. The Incubator kept me very warm and comfortable on a snow night/morning in the UP of Michigan early spring. I came back and picked up the Burro 20 and have used it twice so far, but I'm already digging the overall comfort, craftsmanship and space savings! Customer service was above and beyond, which I believe truly sets a company apart these days. Thanks Hammock Gear!!
by K. Flora – 5th Jul 2016
I bought two 20 degree burrows, one to share, that has the snap footbox, and one for solo, with the sewn footbox. They accommodated my request to add 10 inche's to the width of the one with the snap foot box and still met my adventure deadline. The attention to detail, customer service, and quality of materials is unparalleled. I have had the incubator underquilt for years and love all of their products. They are lightweight, extremely warm, compressible , and durable.
by Jimi Logsdon – 1st Jul 2016
Wow! what a thing of beauty, I love my new Burrow 20. This is the first time I have slept with out being to hot and clammy, I was comfortable all night because of the ventilation ability of this quilt. and what a bonus is it is so light and small when packed. Thank you for such a great product.
by Wendy – 28th Jun 2016
Just as other have stated before me, customer service is top priority for this company. Returning emails very quickly, and getting my order to me before my deadline.
My 12 year old and I spent 5 nights in the Great Smokey Mountains . We were able to shave a lots of weight by switching to burrows from sleeping bags ( we had your typical back yard bags that weigh more than baby elephant and are just as bulky) . We used a air pads for this trip,but I'm absolutely saving up for the under-quilts !
As it states in the care instructions one might notice a pungent odor while the burrow is damped or wet. Well in the Smokyes is rather humid and we did experienced the smell. However overall I am Happy Happy Happy with my purchase.
Thank you everyone in Hammock Gear !
by Mike Nelson – 25th Jun 2016
I had this out and when you hold it up to the sunlight you can see very little loft in top of the bag. I have to question if it will keep you warm on 20* degree night
Response from Hammock Gear:
Good morning Mike, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will take care of your issue.
by Jason – 24th Jun 2016
Top notch quality and construction. This will be my go to topquilt for many years to come!
by Unknown – 17th Jun 2016
Let me start by saying these guys customer service is amazing... I had a million questions relating to switching to A quilt and they answered every one with patience ...
The quilt is amazing quality and I honestly A piece of functional art.
When they heard that I had A deadline my quilt arrived faster than I expected..
This is A great company and I cannot wait to order my summer bag from them as well.
by Michael – 14th Jun 2016
These guys got my wife and I our Burrow 20 in a rush before our trip to Iceland. While in Iceland, we used a camper van with a heater but only wound up using the heat twice because the Burrow 20 kept us so warm. The bags were lightweight and fit in our carry on with no problems. We can't wait to use it on camping trips at home this winter. Many thanks.
by Backpkrmn – 13th Jun 2016
I have a few different quilts, but was really looking for one to fit the gap between temps of 25-45, where I found myself too hot in a 0 degree, and too cold in a 40. I have loved my Hammock Gear under quilt, so I decided to get the Burrow 20. When it arrived I was happy with the loft, the quality of the build was perfect. It puts to shame one of the other brand quilts I have. The amount of fill in each baffle is perfect, and if you need more, you can get more, and you can even have them put it exactly where you want it. If you get cold feet, Hammock Gear will gladly put the extra fill where you need it, at the feet. The colors are awesome, the stitching is superb, and I am comfy and happy!
by Stephen – 6th Jun 2016
I purchased the Burrow 20 with two ounces of extra down as I get really cold when I sleep. I had a very short lead time as I didn't plan well. Everything was perfect. They shipped the product when I needed it and it was most comfortable. Excellent quality.
by Phillip Martin – 25th May 2016
I've been looking for a suitable top quilt for some time. At 6'5" I knew my options would be a bit more limited.
My Hammock Gear Burrow is perfect for me. Just long enough to give me a little extra room, light enough to drop a ton of weight and warm enough for most of the camping/backpacking/adventures I find myself on.
I've taking it on 2 trips so far, One in the late winter/early Spring and it was cozy, and one in the Late Spring/Early Summer - Just a tag of venting and temp was the best I've ever had!
by Dustin – 21st May 2016
This is excellent workmanship on the burrow 20 I recieved and HG went above and beyond for delivering the quilt when I needed it. Everything the other reviewers are saying is true. Great product.
by SquirrelMonkey – 17th May 2016
Had the Burrow 20 out for a great test this weekend. 3 day concert in which the temps dipped below 30 at night. Frost on the bag in the morning (no tarp deployed). I was so nice and warm. This was matched with incubator 20 on the bottom. Love this combo!! And the HG crew is amazing!! I can't say enough about this group of people. Bent over backwards, while jumping through flaming hoops! Thanks again HG for a great product!!
by Unknown – 13th May 2016
Goes right on and kept me warm all night. Very well made.
by Colorado Doug – 10th May 2016
I was reluctant to try a quilt but I just can't get a good nites sleep in a mummy. I use it for backpack hunting in Sept and Oct mostly at high altitude so I bought a Burrow 20 with 2 extra oz and the long version. I'm 5'-11" and wanted to be able to pull it over my head and it's a perfect fit for me. I made up my own string/straps using elastic cord which works fine. Only thing I wish they offered was their own easily detachable straps to keep it tucked under the mat. Mine work fine but do not detach easily. Overall though this has been probably my best decision ever equipment-wise as I now sleep WAY better in this quilt than any of my mummies! LOVE IT!!!!!!
Response from Hammock Gear:
Thanks for the great review Doug! We now offer a Pad Attachment System on our website: http://www.hammockgear.com/ground-pad-attachment-kit/
Feel free to contact us and we'll take care of you.
by Todd – 29th Apr 2016
I ordered the long and wide 20 degree burrow and could not be happier. I get very cold and this puppy kept me warm at some of the lower temperatures I've camped in. Customer service was amazing as they were able to get it to me before an upcoming trip that I wasn't planning on having the quilt available for, but it was! I'll definitely be ordering more.
by wade l. – 28th Apr 2016
VERY high quality construction! very warm! I got the wide and long version and it has plenty of room for me! I am 6'3" 225lbs.
by Al – 23rd Apr 2016
This quilt is exactly what the Dr. ordered. I have used it several times and have been very comfortable. The lowest temp so far has been 26 degrees and not a problem. This is my second order of quilts and I will not go any where else. Thank you all for a great product.
by Darren – 22nd Apr 2016
Finally got to give my HG quits a good run and they performed amazing! First off, the craftsmanship is second to none. Beautiful stitch work and materials... what else would you expect from made in the USA! Second, I didn't get to test the full temperature rating, but it did get in the low 40's/high 30's and I never once felt cold or uncomfortable. It would have a been a very cold night without them as I pulled my under quilt to the side to see what a difference it would make. Lastly, I'm 6'2" & 200 lbs... I ordered the Phoenix under quilt and Borrow standard length and width top quilt... the overlap between the 3/4 length bottom quilt and the top quilt with the buttons snapped was perfect. I'm so excited and happy with this purchase, I just order a full set for the wife.
by Codey – 8th Apr 2016
Excellent product exactly what I expected. It is lightweight warm and very compressible. I give it a 4 because my sleeping pad is wider than the narrow foot box.
by CJR – 6th Apr 2016
Initially, I purchased a 20* Incubator from Hammock Gear. It was so warm, so well-made, and customer service was so amazing that I didn't give it a second thought when I came time to purchase a top quilt. I purchased the wide version of the Burrow 20* with 3oz of over-stuff, and snaps instead of the sewn footbox. I choose Brick Red momentum 90 for the exterior and and charcoal grey momentum 90 interior. It feels fantastic. It took a few weeks to fulfill my order (although customer service offered to expedite the order if I needed it sooner for a trip). When the quilt arrived I was surprised by how small and light the package was. I removed the quilt and allowed it to loft for about 15 minutes. It fluffed up to about 3 to 3.5 inches in height. This sucker is WARM! The stitching is phenomenal. I am glad I got the WIDE version. I am not a huge guy, but my shoulders are wide and I like the extra room the WIDE offers. I feel that the wide version allows me to sleep on my side easier, without causing gaps or cold spots.
Overall, I am extremely pleased with the product, the service and the craftsmanship. Thank you, HG!!!
by Jim Stadler – 5th Apr 2016
Full disclosure. I haven't camped with this yet. I hung my hammock under my back porch for two nights though. So the Burrow 20 and a JrB 0 degree under quilt and I was golden. Of course the temp never dropped below 40 so proof of low temp warmth will have to wait till next winter. The materials and construction are outstanding. Nice to the touch. After receiving this I think a HG under quilt is in my near future.
by Larry Miller – 2nd Apr 2016
Very pleased with my Burrow 20, workmanship is excellent. Haven't had a chance to really use it yet. I could not believe how quickly I received it.
by Unknown – 23rd Mar 2016
Incubator 20 & Burrow 20 / March 19, 20, 2016 . The high was 56, the low was 22 reaching in the low teens with winds up to 10 miles per hour , location, Harriman State Park NY. Elevation was 1300 feet. As the title say's: warm as a bug in a rug. The best decision I have made to upgrade my backpacking gear. It's true what they say and In this case , you do get what you pay for, thanks to Guys and Gals at hammock gear, they know there stuff. Thanks again.
by Unknown – 23rd Mar 2016
My wife and I got into hammocking last year. We first got the ENO quilts and in two out of three trips in only got to 45 and my wife froze!! I saved and purchased two incubator 20's and two burrow 20,s. We took them down to Escalante Utah for two nights last week. I lied to my wife and said the low was only going to be 40 to get her to go. Truth is it got down to 15!! She didn't believe me it got that cold because she was so warm!!! These quilts are amazing!!! The customer service is top notch!!! Thank you Hammock Gear! My wife loves them even more and wants to go again this weekend!!
by Unknown – 17th Mar 2016
I love my burrow 20. I spent last weekend on the SHT where we had at least a foot of snow on the ground. My tarp wound up blowing down and I still stayed warm. I ordered the standard length with standard fill and stayed warm in 28 degrees.

recently purchased this quilt, after a lot of internal debate and back-and-forth on a quilt vs a down sleeping bag. Glad I went with the Burrow.
bought the large-wide version (bigger guy) so I have plenty of extra material. Crawling into it immediately warms me up very well. It wraps and tucks plenty, and the quality is top-notch. The small things - such as the reinforced "V" where it opens up, and the clips to keep it attached to a airmat - are really nice touches that show the design is thought out and shaped by actual use
This matches perfectly with my underquilt - an Incubator 20.
color selection was spot on
zero negative about this quilt - another great product. Sort of expected it from the quality of my Incubator - was definitely pleasantly surprised when the Burrow arrived as good as the previous quilt.

My wife and I ordered two Burrow 20's with an extra ounce of fill. One in burnt orange and the other in bright yellow. Both colours are great. We were swayed to go with HG due to all the rave reviews and I have to agree with them all. The quality is exceptional. We won't be trying our quilts out for a few weeks yet. Our first outing will be a 2 week hike in the central Australian desert. We were very impressed with the service. Our quilts arrived in 3 and a half weeks to Tasmania which is pretty good going. Nice work HG.

Its started to warm up now where I live. I have a trip coming up soon though. It looks great and so light

I have 4 quilts from HG, which should tell you something. They are fantastic quilts. My focus here is on the other end of the product....service. In a nutshell, my daughter did not like the 'feel' of the fabric. of all things. The kind folks at HG allowed me to reorder with the 'smoooooooooooth' fabric and gave me a full refund on the exchange. Now my daughter has a smile from ear-to-ear as she absolutely loves the warmth, comfort, functionality and especially the feel of the quilt. Great products, great service...why buy elsewhere?

The Burrow 20 works great with my Incubator. It took me a while to realize that I need to snug up the Incubator's secondary suspension nice and tight. Once I did that, the Burrow seals off cold from above and the sides. I've had it out to 24 degrees and feel certain it can go colder. I like the snap at the head end. I wonder about the placement of the drawstring, though; it always seems to dangle across my face. Still, I am glad I went with HG and would never consider anything else.

This is the 2nd burrow I have now. This one I chose long and wide with an ounce of overfill to take me to approx 15°. I have used this nightly for a couple of months now and simply love it
I also have a burrow 40 for summer that I have used nightly for over a year. I have been sleeping in a hammock now since August 2014, and have no desire to go back to my king size bed.
Hammock Gear is simply the best in materials, stitching, and overall quality as I believe I have looked at every tq, uq in the market available.
by T.J. – 5th Feb 2016
After several cold weather trips into the back country with my My wife who already had the burrow 20 and never complained about the cold I finally ordered my own and after the first night I was so happy I did the quality of the product is top notch, wish I would have had it years ago. Highly recommend. Thanks again

The Burrow 20 was the last piece of my hammock “kit” to arrive last week. It was added to an Incubator 40 with 2 oz. of overfill which should bring it down to about 30 degrees. The day that it arrived the predicted lows here was 21 degrees so why not test it right off the bat. I loaded the UQ and TQ on and in a Dream Hammock Dangerbird with the over cover in place. I do have but did not use an UQ protector during the test. I was sleeping in a alpaca cap and socks and a waffle top and waffle bottom. The wind was about 5 mph from the northeast. The quilts did their job as expected. I could feel a general coolness on my back until the wind went calm about 2:30. I suspect that the UQ protector would have taken care of that because as soon as the wind calmed I was comfortable the rest of the night. An incubator 20 would have also taken care of the coolness. It stayed 21 degrees for about 5 hours. Topsides were very comfortable and I expect the Burrow 20 would have handled temps to the teens with no problem. Several years ago, I picked up a Big Agnes Horse Thief for an over bag. It will be interesting to see how the Borrow 20 does in that for ground camping. Fit and finish on both quilts is excellent and communication from the folks at hammock gear was right on. Thanks for the great service.

After using HG under quilts and my first burrow 20 for a year now, I knew I had to buy another for my wife. She loves it. Warm and easy to move around in. Packs down to nothing. Excellent quality product. On line Order to house in less than 2 weeks!
by Joseph Roberts – 25th Jan 2016
I purchased the burrow 20 along with the incubator 20. I finally had a chance to give them a go this weekend. The temps were about 22 degrees with a wind chill of 17. These quilts performed amazingly well. I woke up a couple of times during the night because i got to hot and had to actually let some cool air in. I think the rating is as others have said, to be actually on the conservative side. i can't wait to push these quilts to the limit!!!
by Kyle – 25th Jan 2016
Took my Incubator 20 and Burrow 20, each w/ 2 oz. Overstuff, out this weekend and was toasty and warm down to the -8°F temps we experienced. VERY happy with my purchase!!
by M.C. Eli – 23rd Jan 2016
I didn't plan appropriately, asked them to have it to me in 7 days and they delivered with a smile, at no extra cost. I still have trouble processing the awesome. The quilt is very well made, and warm, I used it three nights in 30-20 degree temps in my 3 season tent. I was warm and comfortable. I had the foot box sewn, and the drawstring at the neck works well to hold the heat in. I'm 6'2" and I went with the regular length and don't regret it, I saved a few oz, and I don't sleep with it over my head anyway.

Camped on Winding Stair mtn. mid January on the Ouachita Trail, temperature down to 15 degrees with blowing sleet and snow. Stayed nice and toasty. Slept like a baby. Have the Burrow 20 with 4 extra ounces and the Incubator Zero. Would highly recommend these products to anyone. Even my toes stayed warm. Love it, Love it, Love it.!
by Hiker Mike – 20th Jan 2016
Paired with the Phoenix 20 UQ, first night staying in 27 degree weather with snow falling. I kept my base layer on which was a mistake. I woke up sweating it was so warm. The only issues I have are needing to find better socks (where the Phoenix isn't full length and that was expected) and concern about the snaps. The snaps are so hard to separate I worry about tearing the material if I use them too much. As some one who lives out of his car and moves often packing light for both the trail and in life using the quilt as blanket at home was the reason for the snap option.

I had initially ordered the Incubator 20 Bottom Quilt and when it came in I loved it so much I had to order a top quilt to go with it. I decided on the Burrow 20 wide and long with 2 oz of over fill to ensure it would keep me warm in the colder nights. I went out over New Years and got a few nights to bring in the New Year hanging and let me tell you, I was so nice and toasty warm, not stuck the way i was used to being in a dummy bag. Everything worked perfectly. Weather called for a low of 21 both nights and I would say it was every bit that cold until I climbed in my gear. Amazing product, amazing workmanship, amazing customer service. They will get all of my business if I ever need anything else. Good Work Guys!!
by Allan – 9th Jan 2016
Have had the chance to spend a few nights out in the low 20s. Kept nice and toasty warm. The loft on this quilt is amazing.if I spring for a lighter bag, 40 or 50 degree... It will be HG Burrow. Great product and customer service.
by OlcountryGal – 23rd Dec 2015
Wonderful customer service, helped me get the right product. This is my first top quilt I have used it once and it preformed better than expected. Ya'll keep doing what your doing.

First night near freezing in a hammock and this quilt was great. FIVE STARS WILL BUY AGAIN A++++
by Tyler Condon – 14th Dec 2015
Excellent quality on the craftsmanship. I did notice the goose/wild bird smell to it, but airing it out in the drier on no heat with some tennis balls seems to have helped. If not I will try washing it.
Can't argue with the warmth and the light weight of a down quilt though! Overall I love it!
by Walter Ross – 2nd Dec 2015
Very good quality, well made, cant wait to try it out.

I've recently purchased several items from HG - Cuben tarp with doors, 0 degree bottom quilt, and 20 degree top quilt with 1oz overstuff... Adam was very helpful on the phone, taking the time to discuss decisions and options with me. I delayed ordering a few days, and needed the quilts before visiting the AT. HG got the quilts to me in time (one in stock, and the burrow was custom). I stuffed them in the bottom of my pack and went. Very nice quilts! Conditions were chilly and rainy, but I was nice and toasty! No CBS even though I'd not set them up before camp. Conditions were cool enough that if I pulled the bottom quilt away it was instantly obvious.
I'm just a touch over 6' and found the standard top quilt with a sewn footbox to be a good fit. I had plenty of room without feeling like there was too much quilt, and just enough length.
And IMHO, a cuben tarp sounds nice in the rain.
by patfiveshot – 29th Nov 2015
I'm 6'1 and the regular length Burrow 20 with snap foot box closure fits like a glove. Lightweight and effective. I definitely recommend. Construction is top notch!
by Eric J Owens – 28th Nov 2015
This is my 3rd quilt from Hammock Gear, and for good reason. Performance, light weight, and high quality. This cold sleeper has taken the 20* w/ 1oz overfill to 15* so far (woke up with ice on everything due to humidity of previous day, at that) and I will have no problem going to 10* from what I can tell so far.
These. Are. Exceptional. Quilts.
by Unknown – 28th Nov 2015
Camped in it in temperatures in the high 20's with high winds, slept great, loved it.
by Unknown – 20th Nov 2015
This is my first down top quilt and I couldn't be happier with the quality of the workmanship. Every stitch is flawless. Tested it one night down to freezing and was very pleased with the comfort it provided. I was using a kelty cosmic 20 down bag as a top quilt and this packs so much smaller and lighter it is well worth the extra cost and the performance is great.
by Mark T – 18th Nov 2015
Use this for my ground dweller set-up. Really warm, really well made and really light weight! Colors look awesome too! Used it on a couple trips and it hasn't disappointed!
by Trey – 18th Nov 2015
Most recent purchase was a 20deg burrow top quilt. I've already got the 20 deg HG incubator and together they are fantastic. Went for three days in the Arkansas mountains where it got down to about 36 at night. I could not have been more comfortable. I did have to push the top quilt back a bit a couple times at night because I was too warm. I would highly recommend Hammock Gear products, exceptionally well made.
by Unknown – 17th Nov 2015
Great product, great customer service and support. If you're in the market for anything that HG has you can't go wrong here. I purchased the long and wide borrow 20. I'm 6' 215lb. this has enough material to let me tuck it in around my shoulders and snuggle in. Stayed toasty at 23° my first night out using it, slept in shorts and t-shirt with an HG UQ. A true fan of HG. Thanks guys.
by Adrian P. – 14th Nov 2015
I love the burrow 20! I ordered a short because I'm 5"4 and had a extra ounce of down added to the sewn foot box area because my feet are always cold when backpacking. I used the burrow for the first time in low 30 temps (in a hammock) and I was toasty warm. Even my feet. The short was perfect for my height. It packs down to about the size of a Nalgene bottle and weighs a little more then a pound! Could not be happier!
by T. Fields – 4th Nov 2015
Love it. Top quality work, total comfort.... what more do you want?
by Chuck Carter – 30th Oct 2015
5 Stars as this is everything I was expecting. I got a standard Burrow 20 with woodland camo on the outside and hunter orange on the inside. Snaps cause I knew I'd like it so much that I would want to lounge around the house with it plus I'll more than likely never approach hiking in 20 degree weather.
First night I used it outside, it was VERY humid / foggy. Noticed a down smell after unpacking when I got back home - I was worried it was going to stink and may have been looking for the smell more as I had seen posts about a smell. Put it in the dryer on AIR with some tennis balls and let it air out - no problem.
My favorite piece of gear!
by Jon J. – 28th Oct 2015
I am 6' tall 195lbs. I purchased a 20° Burrow with 2oz overfill and a sewn footbox, long and wide. I asked for an expedited shipment so I could have it in time for a hunting trip. Burrow showed up 1 week after ordering; just in time for my trip. The first night, I slept in it down to 24° and was very comfortable, almost too warm wearing a long sleeve t-shirt and sweat pants. Length is great, just long enough to tuck my head under if it gets too chilly. Width, I probably could have ordered a standard because it gets bunched under me a little, but not enough to be an issue. I have only used it two weekends so far, but I love it and it pairs very nicely with my 20° 2oz overfill Incubator.

I originally ordered a purple burrow 20 with charcoal grey inner lining and later decided to change the outer colour to yellow. About 2 weeks after placing the order, i put in my request for the colour change and they got back to me stating that my purple quilt was already being stitched but gave me the option of waiting an extra week if i wanted them to stitch a new one together. Amazing customer service.
The product itself was everything they advertised it to be and all the reviews i had read beforehand was right. It is extremely lightweight, fits perfectly in our eno doublenest hammock and packs easy. When used with an underquilt, you could definately feel the heat as soon as you get set up under the topquilt. It is warm, yet breathable. I had given it to my boyfriend as a gift and his exact words were "wow. this is what a fetus must feel like!" Haha
by Mike – 22nd Oct 2015
So, I have had my 20* Burrow for a couple of weeks now and have had the opportunity to test it a couple of times and it is great! It is partnered with a 20* Incubator and I have slept warm down to 30* at this point. I am looking forward to testing this equipment at its limits or below!! I got the regular length and width with no overstuff, I am 6'-0" and 240# and a warn sleeper, the quilt fits well and has kept me toasty. The quality is top notch and the colors are great...brick red outer and charcoal grey inner. So happy with my purchase, thank you HG!!!
by Graham – 19th Oct 2015
Much lighter weight and more compressible than the 650 fill 20 deg down bag I had been using as a top quilt. It is a great compliment to my Incubator 20. First trip out was in the low 40's and I was perfectly comfortable sleeping in only a very lightweight base layer top and bottoms. Looking forward to pushing the temps a bit lower! At 6'4" I got the long (+1oz) and it is the perfect length to allow me to pull it up around my head if need be.
by Cathy – 10th Oct 2015
First use in the fall Carolina mountains. Super lightweight, compact and well made. So many nice details like the drawstring around the head, roomy foot end, soft, smooth fabric, vibrant blue color. Exceeded expectations for warmth-definitely a cold night cover that snugged up well. Had already purchased and used the HG underquilt and with the addition to the top quilt (vs. the light weight summer sleepingbag previously used) was quite cozy in breezy 40-50 degree mountain nights. Very happy with the order date to delivery in 10 days and the communication was excellent. A pricey piece of equipment but comparable to upper end sleeping bags on the market and very happy with this product.

This is my second purchase from Hammock Gear. And just like the first, it's perfect! Not only is it extremely warm, it basically weighs nothing. However, lets forget about the product for a minute, because you can read about how amazing their attention to detail is in every other review. The thing that attracts me most to this company is the Customer Service they provide. Not only are they incredibly nice, they went out of their way to get me my quilt in 5 days! That's a custom made quilt, long and wide, with 2 extra ounces of down in 5 days. That's shipping and everything. I will be a life long customer, no questions asked!
by Steve wolfsburg armstrong (United Kingdom) – 25th Sep 2015
After much research and general knosing around I decided to order the burrow 20 from hammock gear all the reviews had me more excited than a kid before Christmas but until you actually lay in one you will never know the true bliss of its downy goodness! Also can I just say the hammock gears sales team are some of the nicest people I've ever had the pleasure to deal with nothing was too much trouble and the turn around for a custom quilt was almost super human thanks Hammock gear!
